After a very long (9 hours – 19 ballots) and at times contentious Organizational Meeting, the FDP members have elected the new DNC members. The new Florida DNC delegation is historically diverse, including black, Hispanic, LGBTQ, Muslim, and white members. Two are from Central Florida, two from SW Florida, one from the panhandle, and 6 from SE Florida. There are individuals representing the old guard and many more new faces. And there is a mix of progressives and moderates.
The newly elected Florida DNC members are:
Nadia Ahmad, Grace Carrington, Alan Clendenin, Marcus Dixon, Samantha Harrington, Thomas Kennedy, Sanjay Patel, Terrie Rizzo, Vivian Rodriguez, Sean Shaw, and Steve Simeonidis. Chair Manny Diaz and 1st Vice Chair Judy Mount are automatically DNC members by the positions they hold.
